It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? a place to meet up and share what you have been, and are about to be reading over the week. It’s a great post to organise yourself. It’s an opportunity to visit and comment and er… add to your groaning TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started on J Kaye’s blog and then was hosted by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn here at The Book Date.
Jen Vincent, Teach Mentor Texts, and Kellee of Unleashing Readers decided to give It’s Monday! a kidlit focus. If you read and review books in children’s literature – picture books, chapter books, middle grade novels, young adult novels or anything in those genres – join them.

Hope you all had a good week. I had a visit from Miss 8 year old. I asked her what she wanted to read next. When she mentioned a series and I didn’t know what she had and what she didn’t, we looked on Goodreads. Then I let her be, while I chatted with her mother and grandmother.

Next day I was surprised to see someone on Goodreads liked that I wanted to read Matilda by Roald Dahl! “What!” I laughed when I saw about three books had been added to my TBR list on GR that Miss 8 year old wanted to read!

What I read last week:

So first two are library books and both good. I especially really enjoyed The Kitchen Front. I didn’t realise rationing didn’t finish until 1954 in Britain.  The Sweeney Sisters was okay, an audiobook. Knot Ready for Murder is a review book.

  1. I love connecting with kids (and adults, too!) over books! She’s got good taste 🙂

    Looks like a nice variety of books for you recently. I didn’t know rationing lasted that long, either! I’m reading a novel about WWII now, set in England, and learning a lot.

    Hope you enjoy your books this week, too! Thanks for hosting the linkup –

  2. I also didn’t know that rationing went on so long in Britain but I’m sure it was the same for Germany and other European countries that had heavy damage from the war. I’m putting some more books on my list Kathryn 🙂

  3. Those little ones are right on top of our technology.

    Great books last week. I might give The Kitchen Front a try. I have The Twelve Clues of Christmas, but haven’t read it yet. Will look forward to your thoughts.

    Hope you have a nice week.

  4. How delightful to have Miss 8 year old add books to your GR. I will be visiting with my almost 9 year old granddaughter and the soon to be 5 year old twins. I hope to share a couple of NetGalley children’s books and we have some audios to share too.
    I am glad that you enjoyed The Kitchen Front and Knot Ready for Murder looks like fun.
    I have listened to Royal Spyness books 1 and 2 and have 12 on Audible. I keep wondering if I can listen to it out of order.
    Have a great week and Happy Reading!

    1. Martha I haven’t reached 12 yet so not sure, she does have a relationship with Darcy I think it is which might advance, but really the mysteries don’t have much to do with each other I find.


  5. Glad you were able to read In A Book Club Far Away. It really resounded with me as we were a military family for 20 years. The author nailed the lifestyle – of course she is/was active duty. Thank you for hosting It’s Monday! 🙂

  6. I had to laugh about Miss 8 Year Old’s Goodreads additions. She’s got good taste! I didn’t discover Matilda until I was an adult but I absolutely loved it. Definitely adding The Kitchen Front to my TBR. I knew rationing was prolonged in England but not sure I knew just how long. Have you read 84, Charing Crossroads? There’s some talk of rationing in that book which I found fascinating. Have a great week!
